Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will try and help you as best as I can.
Please allow a few minutes for me to read your responses and for me to respond back.
I am sorry to hear this has happened. Dogs can be quite fast with eating things like this.
How much do your dogs weigh?
I see. The beagle is not going to be in any harm, however the puppy could potentially have adverse effects from this medication. For that reason, I would induce vomiting in the puppy. You can do this with 1/2 a teaspoon (about 2.5ml) of 3% hydrogen peroxide orally. If there is no vomiting after 10 minutes give a second dose and that should do it. While it is unlikely there will be any long term problems from ingesting the medication, there can be some short term liver and neurologic problems for the puppy, so I would induce vomiting to be safe.
Anything else to induce vomiting would not be very safe for a young puppy. If you don't have any I would take a short trip and pick some up. You still probably have another hour or two before the stomach empties. The other option would be a trip to the vet where they can give an injectable medication to induce vomiting.
you can try that, however they often will not have a good gag reflex.
Another option would be to give some milk to try to bind any drug that might be in the stomach.
I might go this route instead. Give about 1/2 a cup of milk. The calcium can take up some of the drug and block it from getting absorbed. The dose is about a 2.5-3x overdose for your dog. As I don't expect anything life threatening, your dog may be fine just with some blocking of the drugs absorption using milk.
Do you have any milk at home?
You are very welcome.
I think your little pup might be fine with milk as an option.
I would give about a 1/2 cup now, then offer another 1/2 cup in about 1-2 hours.

The signs you are looking for would be nausea, vomiting, lethargy, or ataxia (wobbly or drunk type of walking)
It would likely be a few hours after the initial ingestion
I just wanted to check in with you. How is your pet doing?

I am glad to hear both are doing well.
I had a feeling it might have been the beagle, they will eat everything!
I wish and your dogs the best.
